Acacia in Kenya: SEEKING a more hopeful and just world

By partnering with community leaders dedicated to the care, shelter, and education of young women who might not otherwise have the opportunity to attend high school, we believe we can make the world a better place— one student at a time.

Our History

"We created a poster board that listed how many beds, blankets, bags of food, and other items were needed. At that point we were collecting items for the orphanage I visited as well as the high school. These donors bought blankets, food, school uniforms”
Joyce Mohr
Founders
“Poverty and injustice are hard to face, or live with, and remain just a bystander. By working together we were making tangible and significant differences in the lives of individual young people and by extension, their communities;
